Build inclusive culture

The sport culture within a school – positive or negative - is built on the following:

  • The perceptions about sport and sport’s value (positive or negative)
  • The previous experience of individuals with sport (positive or negative)
  • The opportunities to collaborate with schools and sport organisations
  • The capabilities and resources that exist
  • Personal values
  • Student interests

Undertaking these six steps will aid to counteract any negative culture and foster a positive and inclusive sport culture for young people.

  1. the existing values and beliefs about sport in the school;
  2. leadership support form the Principal and parent leaders;
  3. the benefits of sport, as it relates to the broader school and community values (i.e. academic);
  4. and deliver opportunities to maximise student interests and mitigate barriers;
  5. with surrounding schools and sport clubs to provide sporting opportunities that build community relationships;
  6. opportunities and stories of success with the school and community
